benefits of nutrition

There are many benefits to ensuring your body is properly nourished with the right nutrition. Some of the more frequently-helped conditions are listed below, but as well as these more indirect consequences include increased energy levels, a balanced mood and lower susceptibility to disease. There are so many benefits to improving your diet!

Back pain and inflammation

If you suffer from back ache, muscle or joint pain you may be taking pain killers on a regular basis. Nutrition can be an effective and safe alternative. There are various foods and herbs which have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body and have been shown to reduce inflammation and pain. These include oily fish, pineapples, garlic and onions. In trials, some of the nutrients contained in these foods have proven as effective as some pain killers – without the side effects.

Side effects from many common pain killers include:

• Gastric upset
• Diarrhoea
• Rashes
• Skin rashes
• Photosensitivity
• Water retention
• Kidney problems

A personal nutrition consultation will give you dietary and supplement advice to help with many inflammatory conditions, including back pain, osteo arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis and even period pain. It will also show any link between your joint pain and other conditions such as digestive complaints, headaches and even skin problems.
